THE following companies had announcements or developments that could affect their trading activity on Tuesday.
Singapore eDevelopment: It said that it has been called upon by the Compagnie Française d'Assurance pour le Commerce Extérieur (Coface) - an insurance company and issuer of the performance bond relating to the building works at Jurong West Neighbourhood 2 Contract 19 - to pay the guaranteed sum of S$3.4 million.
This is in accordance with the Legacy Corporate Indemnity relating to the Jurong West Performance Bond following the failure by CCM Industrial Pte Ltd (CIPL) - a previously wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore eDevelopment that was disposed off on May 21, 2014 - to pay the same pursuant to an agreement of counter indemnity relating to the Jurong West Performance Bond between CIPL and Coface.

KrisEnergy: It said on Tuesday it has received approval in-principle from Singapore Exchange (SGX) for the listing and quotation of its S$169.5 million rights shares on the mainboard of SGX, subject to certain conditions.
On June 15, the upstream oil and gas company launched the S$169.5 million rights issue to support its capital expenditure in growing oil and gas production in existing fields as well as near-term development projects. The rights issue is expected to generate net proceeds of about S$165.6 million through the issuance of some 440 million new shares at S$0.385 apiece. Keppel Corporation has subscribed for its full entitlement, which amounts to 137.9 million rights shares, or about 31.3 per cent of the rights issue.
China Environmental Resources Group: The company said on Monday night that it plans to raise net proceeds of about HK$116.3 million (S$20 million) for working capital through a placing of new shares at HK$0.63 apiece.
The new shares represent 20 per cent of the tree and fertiliser products maker's existing issued share capital. The placement price is a 17.11 per cent discount to the stock's closing price of HK$0.76 in Hong Kong on Monday. The Hong Kong-listed company has a secondary listing in Singapore.
